Video Clip and Recap From Glee Episode 4: "Preggers"

Glee-Ful Highlights From This Week's Episode, Including Video!

Just when Kanye West was defending "Single Ladies" as one of the best songs of all time, Glee swoops in with an entire episode dedicated to the tune. We've seen a ton of spoofs of the famous music video — Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg on Saturday Night Live, Joe Jonas — but I've gotta say that I think Kurt's version may be my favorite rendition so far.

This week was Kurt's magnum opus. He and Sue are quickly turning into my two favorite characters, and they both got lots of camera time to keep me happy. Of course it wasn't all about him — the show also included a shocker that should be interesting to see play out. (Big hint: It involves the episode title "Preggers.") Keep reading for my thoughts (warning, spoilers ahead), plus video of Kurt's Beyonce impression when you


  • Kurt opens up the episode in a leotard (because "they wick sweat from the body") with a reproduction of "Single Ladies" — until his dad walks in. Check out the dance below. I'm a little over the Beyonce parodies, but Kurt's moves are spot-on, and he takes himself very seriously, which makes it all the more hilarious. I'm also kind of loving Mike O'Malley as Mr. Hummel. The scene where Kurt comes out to him gave me the warm fuzzies.
  • With the exception of "Single Ladies," the episode was fairly light on the musical numbers, which was kind of a disappointment. Where is the early '90s pop, guys? I hope they were just giving their vocal chords a rest after the music-heavy episode last week.
  • Having the football players dance = awkward and genius. Some of those guys really know how to body roll.
  • Quinn is pregnant? Ugh. I guess I should've seen that one coming. They don't make a character the president of the Abstinence Club and then not have her get knocked up. I'm a little annoyed with the whole covert adoption that's going to play out with her and Terri, but I can't wait to watch the news erupt that Finn isn't the baby daddy. (Although, if Finn had been paying attention in sex ed, he would've figured that out on his own by now.)
  • I was dying over Principal Higgins airline steward video for Mumbai Air. When they release Glee on DVD someday, I hope the full version is in the special features. Embolism-reduction stockings are surprisingly funny.
  • Rachel is wearing thin on me. Anyone else agree? When she gets P.O.'d over Tina's solo, I wanted to give that girl my two cents.
  • Sue's pro-caning speech on the local news was a highlight of the night. ("Yes we CANE.") I love hearing more from her, but towards the end of the episode, it seemed like they were trying to set up her news spots as a moral-of-the-episode lesson. I hope this doesn't become a regular thing — an earnest Sue just doesn't work for me.
  • My favorite line of the night was when Sandy says to Sue, "I'm living in a cocoon of horror!" How great is that scene at his house with the kimono and the doll collection? Creepsters. Second favorite: "My body is like a rum chocolate souffle. If I don't warm up right, it doesn't rise." That's courtesy of Kurt, of course.

What did you guys think of this week's episode? Did you like having the focus on Kurt? Did you miss the flashier production numbers? Let me know in the comments!

I just got on the Glee train this week, and I had set my TiVo to record Glee on a channel in the 800s as opposed to the "real" channel which is something like 15, so it recorded half the show with sound and not video. When I figured out what happened, I switched over to channel 15 and watched the second half of the episode, so I was a bit lost! But I enjoyed it , though I was disappointed there wasn't more singing. Anyone know where I could find full episodes to catch up?

oh and until this episode, i didn't ever notice that Finn's girlfriend's name was Quinn. lol-Finn and cheesey! can't wait for kristin chenowith!! ok, enough...i'm done!!

LOVED this episode!! i LOL-ed so many times. its story lines are sooooo cliche, but they always find an endearing/hilarious way to convey them. i find it so hard to believe that the guys in this show don't know anything about pregnancy! i cannot wait for mr. shu to find out about his wife's fake pregnancy. i kind of hope they don't drag this out much longer b/c its getting old! my favorite sue line was when she said she was pro-littering and wanted to fill the world w/ trash to keep the garbage men employed so they could buy more tacos!!!! this lady is a complete nutcase, but i love it!

One thing I did notice is that Finn is not your typical high school jock. He's vulnerable (I felt so bad when he cried), but he also has dreams. But he is willing to be responsible for Quinn's baby. Plus, Cory Montieth is very cute when he plays naive and innocent:)

This is one of my favourite episodes of the show (the other one is the pilot)!!!!! I don't mind it doesn't have more music numbers because I don't think this is one of those shows that just put the music in when it doesn't have any relationship with the story. I laughed so much and cried so much!! The laughing part comes from the dancing to Single Ladies (Kurt and the footabllers) The crying comes from Kurt coming out to this father. BUT....yeah, Rachel is selfish and annoying (which is ok, because this is the strength of the show, 3-D character), but I think Teri and her sister's are the worst! They are adults, and they are worse than the teens! Yes I would like to punch them both in the face!!! I think they should re-write Teri's character because her character is the most cliched and flat for the whole show. She's like a cartoon villian (and her sister). At least make her more sympathetic so we would feel bad rooting for Will and the cleaning-wipe lady to be together! I used to think Sue's character is just jealous and bitchy, but I think Lynch really put a dark spin on her character. After the show, I think she has turned into a psychopath. Very chilling, but all smiles etc. Actually, she and Rachel is soooooo alike in terms of temperament. Both blackmailed in order to get what they want....etc etc.

There is a new episode next week. Christine Chenowoth (however you spell her name) is on the show. I think you can see it here:

I wished there were more musical numbers, but I still continue to love this show. The football players dancing was hilarious!

Loved this episode, I was laughing out loud through several moments :) I did miss the musical numbers, especially after Acafellas and Rachel was kinda annoying. I couldn't help thinking why is she doing ballet? After an episode where she was desperate to get thin, they have her doing ballet? Found it kind of odd.

I thought Teri's sister was funny- annoying and pisses you off yes but funny. I guess they don't do sex education in HS in Ohio- otherwise Finn might know better. I am not real happy with the baby mama drama/teen pregnancy bit with a show like this. Simple boy girl drama can draw more comedy then this serious drama.

This ep was hilarious, I loved watching the whole football team dance to single ladies.

i loved it. Kurt coming out to his dad and the way he yells "thats my boy" at the game is so heartwarming. the single ladies reprise was fun. and yes. rachel is annoying. but you know who annoys me more and more as episodes continue. TERRI'S SISTER!!! i wanna dropkick her in the face.

I never really liked the song much, but the dance never gets old, especially when it's done by a football team. I liked the focus on Kurt. The father-son moment was so sweet. He's a really likable character.

I also love the Pro-Littering take by Sue. Awesome. I kinda wish Kurt had been singing single ladies, but the whole football team doing the dance made up for that. I'm a little worried about the men of this show. They know nothing about pregnancy! Mr. Shu took his wife's word on the sex of their baby before her 1st trimester, and Finn thinks he got his g/f preggers from hot tub kissing... really?! Can't wait for more!!

I'm really done with the 'single ladies' thing but it was fun to watch the team do it. Kurt is my favorite character.

I agree Buzz, Rachel is definitely getting on my nerves. She needs to be fair to other members of the club. Quinn is also annoying me. I absolutely adore Kurt! His "Single Ladies" dance was so great. And those football players really know how to dance! I am looking forward to a few more flashier song and dance numbers in the weeks to come, but I did enjoy this episode.

I don't love Glee, and I don't really like "Single Ladies" but I did like this episode. The focus on Kurt and his dad was really good and everyone was really funny. I couldn't help but laugh.

I'm annoyed with Rachel as well. And I also was missing the musical numbers. Besides the Single Ladies stuff, there was only Rachel singing Celine Dion (barf) and Tina's mediocre version of "Tonight." I loved when Terri told Quinn that if she doesn't take pre-natal vitamins, the baby would be ugly.

I liked, you know, mostly because of Kurt. He's a cutie and he coming out to his father was really sweet. But a LOT happened. The pregnancy, the adoption, Rachel not being cast as the main part, the football team, Kurt and his dad. Everything was amazing, but they could split this drama in two episodes IMO. And I really like Rachel and I can see her point. I don't get mad at her. Overall good episode, but a little mishandled.
